The Other Immigrants: A Discussion of Black Immigration

Thursday, February 21, 2019

Contemporary news coverage of immigration often focuses on the experiences of those coming from Central America. However, as shown in this year’s Black History Month exhibition, the experiences of people from the African diaspora are equally as important in telling the story of immigration to the United States. Join us for a panel discussion detailing the history and experiences of Black immigrants in the Washington, D.C. region.

Panelists will include a variety of local Black leaders who immigrated to this area, including Karl Racine, Attorney General of the District of Columbia.
